Electricity Facts Labels for Residential Electric Service

Shopping for electricity is a new concept for Texans, and the Public Utility Commission of Texas has developed a way for customers to make an "apples-to-apples" comparison of offers from Competitive Retail Electric Providers.

The Electricity Facts Label, similar to a nutrition label found on many food products, provides information on electricity prices and contract terms. This information will help you make an informed decision about your electric service.

Each Retail Electric Provider is required to provide you with a copy of their Electricity Facts Label upon request. The Electricity Facts Label encourages you to compare information, in a standardized format, so you can select a Retail Electric Provider based on what matters most to you.
